Being LGBTQ at Lehman: A World Café Conversation
Start Date: 9/11/2019Start Time: 3:30 PM
End Date: 9/11/2019End Time: 5:30 PM

Event Description:

Following the suicide of an LGBTQ-identified Lehman College student in 2018, a group of faculty, staff, administrators and students have been meeting to discuss ways to ensure a safe and affirming campus for our LGBTQ members.  

As a result, Lehman College will host a campus-wide discussion in a World Café format to which all College community members are invited. Learn more about the World Café discussion format here: http://www.theworldcafe.com/key-concepts-resources/world-cafe-method/.
The purpose of the discussion is two-fold:  1) to identify specific needs of LGBTQ community members and ways to address them; and 2) to energize the Lehman Community to build a safe and affirming campus for LGBTQ community members.

 

What attendees can expect: According to the Art of Hosing (artofhosting.org), the World Café got its name because it imitates a café setting where small groups (4 or 5 people) are all conversing together around tables.  In this case, a cluster of small groups – anywhere from 10 to 1000 – are in conversation about an issue that matters to them or some work they are trying to do together.  It is an ideal way to find out what a community is thinking and feeling about a topic.  After the first conversation, someone stays at the table as ‘host’, while the others move to a new table, taking their previous conversations with them. In this way, the threads of the various conversations are woven together and all of us get a sense of what is being discovered and developed between us
